    As a first step in supporting our community during the COVID-19 pandemic, the trustees made an immediate and significant      grant  to the One Louisville Response Fund, dedicated to not-for-profit organizations.  Please visit this site to learn more   https://www.cflouisville.org/one-louisville/  

   The Gheens Foundation generally places few restrictions on grants, making most for general operating support. During this time, we understand the need for flexibility more than ever and encourage you to reach out to us if you need to repurpose your grant.  Reporting requirements have been eased to a time more fitting for your organization.

​   For more information regarding our grant application, visit the "Grant Process" page on this website.
